Egyptians: built in capital – account wide effect
Main goal: strengthen the identity of the Egyptian tribe.
foreign troops consume 25%
MORE crop in your villages.
- Egyptian troops consume 25% LESS crop in your villages.
The Egyptians are the strongest defensive tribe. Their troops are efficient, fast and there are enough types to cover all possible scenarios.
Although, one of the main strategies involving the Egyptians is using their capital's bonus crop production, alongside their wall bonus (strongest in the game) to store friendly hammers and feed them there.
This strategy, commonly used, hurts the identity of the Egyptians as a "simming" tribe, easy to defend and benefits more from settling villages with higher production thanks to the waterworks building.
I believe that the tribe should remain mostly the same, with no efficient offensive capabilities in return for higher production and better defensive units than the rest of the tribes.
What the Sphinx does is address this dull strategy by putting an opportunity cost on it. It will still be used in the competitive levels, but should balance them out by losing the Sphinx effect.
This should strengthen the identity of the Egyptians by incentivizing them store more of their own troops, which compliments their high wall bonus and bonus production. You should think twice before attacking an Egyptian.
NOTE: all friendly Egyptian troops will consume less crop and all friendly non-Egyptian troops will consume more crop, including your own.
Foreign troops consume more crop in your villages.
Egyptian troops consume less crop in your villages.
Can only be built by Egyptians and only in their capital. It affects the whole empire.
